Atlanta Hawks Organist
I Got Hired Off Craigslist …
Now I’m Cool With 2 Chainz

Sir Foster‘s become a breakout star during the Hawks’ playoff run by busting out renditions of songs by Chris Brown, Outkast, Lady Gaga, Bon Jovi … pretty much every genre of popular music. He tells TMZ Sports it’s all thanks to Craigslist.
Foster says he landed his dream job when “the team put out a Craigslist ad for an organist. I had zero experience playing sporting events, but I figured, ‘I have nothing to do today,’ so I went.”
He nailed that audition 6 years ago — and now that the Hawks are dominating deep into the playoffs, he’s getting national recognition, and local celebs dig him too. “I’ve gotten a lot of support from artists like Ludacris, 2 Chainz, Pastor Troy and The Dream.”
Foster says the key to his success is staying away from traditional (aka boring) stadium music — “I play the songs people in Atlanta like to listen to.”
He’s smart too … during last night’s game, Foster busted out Lil B‘s “Wonton Soup.” Always good to give props to The Based God.
